Yes, breast cancer remains a killer of women, but, as always, early detection and treatment remain the best defense in fighting the disease.

At the same time, women from Druze, Muslim Shiaa, Muslim Sunni and different Christian denominations greatly exhibited a fatalistic belief, which for some acted as a strong push to take care of themselves, while others laid everything in the hands of God without pursuing preventative actions.

Komen Foundation this year to host a breast cancer screening clinic on October 26. Most often its first detected by a mammogram or other imaging scan with no other signs or symptoms.

A majority of breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years or older.

Breast cancers that have spread to other parts of the body are more hard to treat and tend to have a poorer outlook.

According to the Utah Cancer Control Program, a joint effort with Utah's Department of Health and local health departments, more than a thousand Utah women will be diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer this year - and more women in Utah die of breast cancer than any other form, so finding cancer early with a mammogram and pap test saves lives.
